Woman gets suspended sentence for embezzlement

An Indio woman won’t see any jail time after pleading guilty to embezzling nearly $150,000 from the mobile park where she worked.

A judge sentenced 51-year old Christina Jo Cruz to nearly 15 years in prison and then suspended the sentence, giving Cruz probation.

Cruz pleaded guilty to embezzling over $100.000 from the Happy Wanderer Community Association in Indio.

The judge suspended the sentence because of what he called special circumstances, including Cruz’s age and the fact that she cares for 2 special needs relatives.
